Salsa was one of the very first recipes I remember enjoying to make.
I have been making my own salsa since I was a teenager.
Recently, I found this recipe and my mouth started to water as I saw it.
I made it immediately.
It was incredibly similar to my version with a few added ingredients that really makes it amazing!
With a few tweaks, it's now my go-to recipe.
1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes with juice
2 cans (10 oz) Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilies) I prefer to use one HOT and one ORIGINAL.
1 can of diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped white onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 whole jalapeno, quartered
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 whole lime juice (sometimes I cheat and use concentrated lime juice)
Combine everything into a bowl. Use a hand mixer to blend until you get the consistancy you like.
Test seasonings with tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Eat immediately, or serve after it's chilled.
